...and a necessary attribute for successful trading.
Does the track record on fundseeder starts from the date the IB account is linked, or from the date of the inception of the IB account?
From your post, it appears that it's from the inception of the IB account, correct?
Yes, inception of the IB account.
Is this the default way?
If I only want to track the performance from the day I link my IB, while ignoring the previous performance, is it possible?
No idea. You'll have to ask FS as there is certainly no menu option.
But...I doubt it. Would make the system very easy to game.
They give you two options: since inception or since link date. This is reasonable I think as people may have changed strategy or restarted trading after a gap or such like. It looks as if the FS score penalises shorter performance histories to compensate for this. For example, GAT's performance gives him a FS score of ~80 but there are accounts with better statistics (including +ve skew accounts) but shorter histories with much lower FS scores.
If you can't do this at fundseeder then you could consider to open a so-called "linked account" at IB. This will get a new Uxxxx number. Then connect your fundseeder to this newly created account.
Can FS see the positions or only the performance history in the account?
Is anyone aware of any fundseeder seeded funds?
Interesting silence to this important question.
